There is nothing like the finish line at the end of a marathon!
I am so proud of my dear friend, Marcia! She is an amazing mother, wife, career woman, sister, and friend! Did I mention she is also a marathon runner at 50 something! I know…she looks fabulous!
I am so inspired by her commitment to a healthy, active lifestyle. As “women of a certain age”, it is important that we lead active lives and take good care of ourselves. I know that we get so busy taking care of everyone else, that we often neglect ourselves. However, if we are not healthy…then we can’t be there for anyone. Be sure to get your physicals, mammograms, try to eat right and exercise! Now, you know I am just reading my own “to do list” LOL!
Seriously, I plan to become more active. Marcia has motivated me to put on those running shoes and start… walking!
Hey, you gotta start somewhere! I think it helps when you have someone to walk/run with. There are great organizations like Black Girls Run, where you can find running partners and do marathons together. Checkout their website here. There is probably a running club similar to this right in your area. When I asked Marcia what it was like training and running with her husband she said, “We have been married for 26 years, so we decided to run 26 miles together on Valentine’s Day.” Aww…so beautiful, now that is love! You go Marcia! You are an inspiration to us all!
Stay busy being fabulous,
